Monty Panesar is likely to travel to India with the England Performance Programme in mid-November

Further to recent media reports, the England and Wales Cricket Board can confirm that Monty Panesar will not be travelling to Sri Lanka to play for Bloomfield CC in the Sri Lanka Premier League as previously stated.
